Downtown parkers can turn their parking tickets into an opportunity to help those in need during the Forget the Fine Citation Forgiveness Event.
Park Cedar Rapids will be accepting donations of new items for area homeless shelters and family service centers Nov. 27 through Dec. 21, 2018. In return, Park Cedar Rapids will forgive the citations of parking participants up to $100.
In order to have a citation dismissed, participants must donate new items similar in price to the issued citation. VIEW THE FULL LIST OF ACCEPTED ITEMS HERE
